How To Incorporate The Color Of The Year Into Your Upcoming Wedding

This time comes around every year, where a new color is nominated to be the color of the year and sets the way for fashion and trends. Pantone has announced the Color of the Year for 2018 to be Ultra Violet purple! So how will this color contribute to wedding season this year?


Pantone described the awarded color as “Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.”

Therefore, for those brides who are looking to break away from tradition or try something new, this color is the ideal choice for their wedding theme. Here is how it can inspire you and be a favorite this upcoming year.


You don’t have to change everything to Ultra Violet, just incorporate it into the traditional wedding essentials. A perfect way to tone it down is by adding a couple of flowers to the cake. A light touch of purple to the cake will give it that extra pop without going over-the-top.

Along with other rich and paler colors, adding a mix of Ultra Violet flowers into the bride’s bouquet will be absolute perfection. Another way could be to add Ultra Violet ink on your invites against a classic white backdrop.


When it comes to your bridesmaid colors, do not think you have to go and dress all your favorite girlfriends in matching purple. Change it up a bit with different shades, and add in complimentary colors to their accessories and bouquets.

Another way to be creative and cute is by using vases which double as table numbers. By filling each of the vases with purple blooms, your guests will be able to find their seats and be welcomed by gorgeous flowers at the centerpiece.
